People often feel deep emotions in response to the lives of animals. Learning of one animal's suffering or many animals' suffering may touch us very deeply. Prayer connects us with God and all of Creation. Through prayer, we are made one with all of God's creatures. Arranged across the arc of the day, this book includes original prayers by Carol J. Adams. Here are prayers for parents of children who have lost pets, prayers for farmed animals or animals imprisoned in laboratories, for the hunted and endangered, for the wellbeing of all animal caretakers, for animals in shelters.

Besides offering original prayers and adaptations of classics, it explains how to lead rituals and celebrations, and provides advice on involving pets in spiritual events, including those conducted by the clergy. Although the work honors many faiths, it is non-denominational and non-religious, and encompasses elements from many cultures and traditions.

For additional information on the book, go to www.prayersforanimals.org. We love our pets. We care for them by feeding them and taking them to the veterinarian. But do we ever pray for them? Because we've never been given the words to express what's in our hearts, these animals that reflect the Divine are too often excluded from our prayer life. We've been taught to pray for those we love, those in need, those who are alone, and all those less fortunate than us, but seldom do we find texts that teach us to pray for the animals around us. In Preces pro Animalibus, Lori Marra gives us the words that so often fail us when we are confronted with an animal that requires and deserves our prayers. This collection of simple, sincere prayers, poems, and stories will guide you and inspire you to pray for animals in crisis, for new pet arrivals, for working animals, for pet owners, for nature, and for animals that have passed on.

Christians believe that the logos is the source of all life, yet Christian worship remains unashamedly human-centric. The world of creation, and animals in particular, is almost invisible in our worship. The churches do not have the liturgical means of celebrating the life of animals, giving thanks for their companionship, praying for the relief of their suffering, or marking their death. This unique book provides a variety of liturgies that are animal-friendly and animal-inclusive. They include services in celebration of animal companionship, services for animal welfare, healing liturgies, new eucharistic prayers "for the whole creation," and animal burial services. Underlying all these new forms is a serious theological purpose: to help us to draw deeper into the mystery of God's work in creation and to affirm other sentient beings as co-creatures with us.

Compassion for Animals

Our pets. They are our loyal companions and our faithful friends, a constant source of joy and inspiration.

Readers will be delighted by Anne Porter's poem exalting a spring symphony of peepers and Rumi in praise of birds in flight. The section "Partings" includes Annie Dougherty's lovely poem "Time to Say Good-bye" and Lord Byron's epitaph to his dog. "Reflections" includes the words of St. Francis, Jane Goodall, and Chief Seattle, reminding us that we are all interconnected beings, and James Herriot and Walt Whitman honoring the humble dignity of all creatures. Animal Blessings makes a wonderful gift for all animal lovers. This delightful volume is a charming companion that reminds us to be grateful for everything our pets and all the other animals of the world bring to our lives.

God Listens When You're Sad: Prayers When Your Animal Friend Is Sick or Dies follows the mourning process of children through a series of prayers that recognizes several aspects of a child's grief--the difficulty of understanding sickness and death, the feelings of worry and fear, having a dream about the deceased animal, one's physical experience of grief, and the sense that adults don't understand what they are going through. Written from a child's viewpoint, the prayers respond to the love and care that naturally exist between children and animals. Through these prayers, children also have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God. The book contains a blank page upon which the child can glue a photograph of the animal(s) for which they are praying.
